Did I just hear the boss of an aged care home with 70% of its staff in COVID isolation say they didn’t push to vaccinate them earlier because they were worried about losing staff? pic.twitter.com/TGT3wHimHt
We are now nearly 18 months into the pandemic. Bottom line: the quarantine system, vaccine supply, vaccine distribution & aged care are a debacle. It’s time for Hunt, the Health Minister, to take responsibility for all this & resign. It’s no longer tenable https://t.co/AZjJPsfLl4
There are at least three COVID positive aged care residents inside SummitCare at Balkham Hills. This information hasn’t been confirmed yet by NSW health, but I have it on two separate sources. A devastating moment for this state, and certainly the families involved
NSW Nationals Leader, John Barilaro, this morning said “like every Australian, why our frontline workers in aged care haven’t been vaccinated is alarming”. Too right it is! Scott Morrison promised it’d be done by Easter - but then decided “it’s not a race”.
Some indigenous communities unreached by any vaccine supply at all. Aged and disability residents, families and workers still not all done. Cases detected in aged care facilities. Previous targets junked. Arrivals halved “because of Delta”. Yet Delta been running for six months.
